  16. 16. We prepared for a backlash
  17. 17. cc: jezarnold - https://www.flickr.com/photos/35486877@N00 Which didn’t materialise
  18. 18. What went right?

  28. 28. UCL admin and financial systems Portico – student information service Financial Information System (FIS) - financial data and management Timetabling/CMIS - room bookings and timetabling Service in Partnership (SiP) – HR forms Rome - online recruitment Web content management (silva) Scanners – being piloted as attendance checks for Points-Based Immigration System (PBIS) UCL teaching and learning systems Moodle - e–learning environment Turnitin – plagiarism detection Lecturecast – automated lecture recording Opinio - web-based surveys My Portfolio – staff and student e-portfolio Electronic Voting Systems (EVS) – audience response 'clickers' Wiki – collaborative web pages Blackboard Collaborate – virtual classroom Communication and networking tools Email – inefficient way of contacting students?

  30. 30. 4. Students demanded better Moodle
  31. 31. What students liked best
  32. 32. Some staff are quick and use the resource really well; couldn't ask for better. Others seem either tech-shy, slow to load materials, or don't get the links right … My #### classes … seemed to have an aversion to any 21st century technology altogether. Consistency and more control in Moodle would be good But… Moodle use varies enormously by lecturer: some make excellent use … some don't use them at all All courses should be on Moodle, and lecture notes and homework problems uploaded on to it
  33. 33. So…
  34. 34. A departmental push
